    ^^^I wonder if the training wheels are because of the weight of the mechanical rider, although it seems to be constructed from mostly aluminum plate and shouldn't be too heavy. Looks well-made.

    someone must have had a fair bit of time on his hands to come up with that (when there are so many motors for bikes available)

    My stoker/wife has permission to touch my butt if she wants to. I would not grant that permission to a robo-stoker.

    This is amazing! The music is appropriate too, "Daisy Bell" is about riding on a tandem. Which incidentally, was also the first song to be sung by a computer, making it appropriate for a video about a robotic tandem
